Disney said yes, which meant Captain America’s shield appeared in the film. When it came together, Reynolds realized that Evans was in the same city filming for Apple Defender Jacob and texted him to see if he would appear as a guest in the film.

According to Levy, Evans said yes, but only if he could “be in and out in ten minutes.” Levy added, “That’s how we ended up with Chris Evans, in addition to a lightsaber, a Hulk fist and Cap’s shield.”

He explained: “The Chris Evans comb is so perfect. And when I’ve seen the film with the audience, the explosion of cheers and laughter in that moment is really gratifying. It’s like a director’s dream.”
